Rod Lopusnak has left American Suzuki Motor Corp. (ASMC) to take a marketing position with AMA Pro Racing.
Lopusnak served as marketing manager for ATVs and motorcycles at Suzuki. He was honored by Powersports Business magazine last year with a Powersports Leadership Award for his strong performance in rebuilding Suzuki's ATV program.
Under his direction, Suzuki's market share jumped from about 4% in 2001 to 10% in 2003. Suzuki's motorcycle sales also have grown over the last several years.
No replacement has been named for Lopusnak, and a company spokesman said the position is being re-evaluated due to the growth of the ATV and motorcycle operations.
